My Dinner with Andre (1981) Biography, Comedy, Drama | 110min | October 11, 1981 (United States) 7.8
Director: Louis MalleWriter: Wallace Shawn, Andre GregoryStars: Andre Gregory, Wallace Shawn, Jean LenauerSummary: Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory, apparently playing themselves, share their lives over the course of an evening meal at a restaurant. Gregory, a theater director from New York, is the more talkative of the pair. He relates to Shawn his tales of dropping out, traveling around the world, and experiencing the variety of ways people live, such as a monk who could balance his entire weight on his fingertips. Shawn listens avidly, but questions the value of Gregory's seeming abandonment of the pragmatic aspects of life. —Rick Gregory <rag.apa@email.apa.org>
